Hello friends,The Iliad and the Odyssey are, or rather contain, the oldest Greek writings we have. There is no way to date accurately any part of them. Scholars differ widely, and will no doubt continue to do so. As unobjectionable a date as any is 1000 B.C. — at any rate for the Iliad, the older of the two poems.
In all that follows, here and in the rest of the book, the date given is to be understood as before Christ, unless it is other*wise stated.

I can't understand or paraphrase the blue part. Would you please be nice enough to clarify it to me?
I even know which is a verb and which is a subject in the blue part.
